Hello,

The only way I can think of would be HIP checks/profiles via a VPN connection.

@vineetagarwal,

One of the ways you could do something like this is through user-agent identfication attached to a custom vulnerability signature and assigning the vulnerability high enough that the traffic gets reset; just keep in mind that this isn't really a common use for this feature and you would likely have a large list of user-agent 'vulnerability' signature depending on what you are trying to do. 

 

So for XP computers for example you would need to Pattern Match on http-req-headers and the pattern itself would be User-Agent:.+Windows NT 5\.[12]|User-Agent:.+Windows XP
